The wall tells a very interesting story about Portsmouth history. It also tells the story of the artist that painted it. It is a real must see! Words don't do it justice.

Very interesting for history buffs. Great artistic work. Take your time to study each picture. Always try to at least drive by the wall when we are in the area. Sometimes you find things you looked over on previous visits.

Murals are a MUST when visiting Portsmouth, OH! Colorful illustrations depict Portsmouth's history, beginning with the Shawnee Indians. Located on a quiet side street that invites pedestrians to walk and enjoy. We have revisited several times.
